Robot hands could gain a gentler touch with inexpensive tactile sensing technology utilizing widely available electronic chips, U.S. researchers say.
Engineers at Harvard University have developed a very inexpensive sensor for robotic hands sensitive enough to turn a brute machine into a dexterous manipulator, the school said in a release Thursday. . . Read Complete Report

Researchers from the Pennsylvania State University (USA) have proposed new borders of the habitable zone for earth-type planets. Using as a basis the corrected absorption coefficients of molecules of water and carbon dioxide, they came to the conclusion that potentially “habitable” planets should be looked for farther away from a star than it was previously considered. . . .

Predicting the end of the world is a no-win situation. If the world doesn’t end you are seen as a fool. If it does end there is no one around to tell “I told you so”. . . . EDITOR

I’ve been following prophecy speculators for almost exactly 40 years. They all have one thing in common. They’ve been consistently wrong for nearly 2000 years. In the 1970s, Hal Lindsey’s The Late Great Planet Earth was a mega-best seller. It was the No. 1 non-fiction book of the decade. (Some would put it in the fiction category.)
Lindsey predicted that it would all fall apart by 1988 based on the premise that Israel becoming a nation again in 1948 was the key to determining when the “rapture” of the church would take place. He claimed that it would be no longer than 40 years from 1948. That was 25 years ago. . . Read Complete Report

Soon there may be a cellphone that can see though walls and into other objects as Caltech engineers have made tiny, low-cost terahertz imager chips that could be incorporated into cellphone cameras.
A secret agent is racing against time. He knows a bomb is nearby. He rounds a corner, spots a pile of suspicious boxes in the alleyway, and pulls out his cell phone. As he scans it over the packages, their contents appear onscreen. In the nick of time, his handy smartphone application reveals an explosive device, and the agent saves the day.
Sound far-fetched? In fact it is a real possibility, thanks to tiny inexpensive silicon microchips developed by a pair of electrical engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). . . . Read Complete Report
